Last week I posted about a Brown Thrasher in my bird feeder. They are ground feeders, as are Mourning Doves, but there also has been a Mourning Dove in the feeder. Usually, the doves gather on the ground under the feeder to forage for the birdseed that has fallen. I also deliberately scatter seed on the ground. On the day I saw this dove in the feeder, there was very little birdseed in the feeder and plenty on the ground, so I don’t know why this beautiful Mourning Dove chose the feeder.
